Whilst achieving some fantastic exam results in 2016, including English, Culcheth High School is particularly pleased with the results achieved in our STEM subjects. A big thank you goes to the staff who have contributed to the extra-curricular activities that have already taken place in the last few years.

Mr Hunt’s GCSE results article details the excellent results achieved, including those achieved in the STEM subjects of Science, IT, Design Technology and Maths.

As STEM subjects are crucial in so many parts of our daily lives, Culcheth High School has decided to formalise its STEM coordination by putting together a team who will organise and promote cross-curricular activities. This recognises the importance of STEM subjects to an array of career choices. However, successful careers in STEM industries also require success in other subjects too. The team members are Mr M Lamble, Mrs B Andrews, Mrs J Shaw, Mr C Uttley, Mr J Heaton and Dr R Bainbridge.

Building on the amazing schedule of events organised in previous years, we will still have the popular STEM Club on Thursdays after school in K106. The hugely successful Moonwatch will again be taking place this term on the 10th November 2016. This is a community event open to everyone. Further details will follow. Look out for events in Apprenticeship week and National Science and Engineering week from the 13th March 2017.

Notice boards in the Science, Technology and Mathematics departments will have all the details. We look forward to an excellent year of STEM activities to support our students move forward to the world of work. Please come and see us.

Dr R Bainbridge, STEM Co-ordinator
